The Pendulum Keeps Swinging—EEO-1 Pay Data Update
The 2018 EEO-1 Survey Site officially opened on Monday, March 18, 2019. While there was some confusion about this year’s filing requirement due to the recent court decision reinstating the pay data component, the current filing format is the same as last year, with no pay data required. The current deadline to file 2018 EEO-1 reports is May 31, 2019.
In addition, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released the following statement on the pay data component:
The EEOC is working diligently on next steps in the wake of the court’s order in National Women’s Law Center, et al., v. Office of Management and Budget, et al., Civil Action No. 17-cv-2458 (TSC), which vacated the OMB stay on collection of Component 2 EEO-1 pay data. The EEOC will provide further information as soon as possible.
In a further twist, it appears “as soon as possible” means by April 3, 2019. On March 19, 2019, the court ruled that the EEOC has until April 3 to inform employers of its plan to collect pay data.
